Which Halo Song was the Most Memorable?

OnlySP: The Halo soundtrack series has gone on to be renowned as one of the finest achievements in the industry, so it’s no doubt that one or two songs will get stuck in the heads of many a gamer. Yet over the course of a decade and seven games, who’s to decide what’s the most memorable? The most intriguing, atmospheric and enjoyable moments from the Halo games were crafted by Martin O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori, whose composition and production skills were unsurpassed at the time of the ‘Halo Original Soundtrack’ release. Whilst it can be said that any song out of the discography to the series that spans 100+ tracks is enjoyable, some songs definitely leave more of an impression than others: (Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo 4, Halo Wars, PC, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Brilliant piece of music, but for me the menu music for Halo 3 was the best,

From what I've played of Halo. None really. I like those choir that sounds like angels. Thats about it.

Was coming here to say the hidden track "Siege of Madrigal" in halo:CE was my favourite, which I beleive was reused for halo 3 as a main theme, although with more accompaniment and slight alterations. Definitely chills every time :D

Just reading this and thinking about it gave me chills.

But there's so many amazing ones, Warthog run has to be the most classic, The remix theme is so badass, the Halo 3 menu theme is so memorable, and ODST and Reach themes are just their own beasts.

Delta Halo Suite. Feels like the perfect Halo track.

When I heard it you knew something epic was going to happen.

I listen to this in my car all the time, and it plays in the Covenant which has to be one of my most favorite missions of all time.

Halo 2 Prologue

Halo 3 Theme

Halo 4 - 117
https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Halo 4 - Sacrifice
http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Those are my top four. I can't pick any one greater than the other personally. Each represents a step or evolution for Master Chief (or the Arbiter, in the case of the Halo 2 Prologue).

The press start button music from the first halo- ahahhhhhahhhahhhahhahhhhh
tigertron  +   721d ago
For me it was 'Never Forget' and the main theme.

I've listened to every score from the Halo games. It's a beautiful score, but most of it is just various renditions of the menu music.

Halo e menu music is the most memorable but my personal favorite is Halo 3: ODST - The Light at the end of the tunnel https://www.youtube.com/wat...

When this music played, i felt vulnerable unlike the unstoppable feel you get when you are commanding Master Chief.

Easy-the opening main theme of Halo CE. It's the basis for all the subsequent music in the sequels. I think Halo, I hear the monks.

That chanting monk song from Halo 3 menu.
